Tomb Raider Movie 2018 Alicia Vikander

First Trailer For TOMB RAIDER Reboot Released

It’s been 14 years since Angelina Jolie made the role of Lara Croft her own. And much like the recent re-imagining of the Square Enix games, a new beginning to the Tomb Raider has come to film.

Based off the well-known action-adventure games that started in 1996, this upcoming film seems to take closer inspiration from the 2013 reboot and stars Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) as the iconic Lara Croft.

The synopsis is as follows:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

The film also stars Daniel Wu (Warcraft: The Beginning), Dominic West (Punisher: War Zone), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient). You can check out the trailer below!

Tomb Raider is set to be released March 16th, 2018.
